Bilal

Sourav Sarangi. 2008. India. vo Bengali. s English. 92’

Bilal can see but his parents cannot. He is only three years old and hardly understands what blindness is. Bilal also has a little brother, Hamza. And inside a tiny dark and dank room together they live in a curious game of seeing and not seeing. Neighbors and relatives surround them. The film tells this unusual story by observing the little boy over a year by capturing rare moments of sharing love, fun, cruelty and hope... the wonder world of Bilal.
